Shoegaze in a New Decade: Juleah releases third LP Melt Inside The Sun

 Over two years ago, I discovered a treasure-trove on YouTube. A collection of painstakingly recorded covers: Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Kasabian, Oasis, the Brian Jonestown Massacre. A musician calling herself “Juleah” evidentally had very similar music taste to me, and her covers were incredible. Her music was bluesy and dark but carried itself with an […]

Having already found success with self-released songs like Marianne and Call Along the Coast, The Carousels are […]

Shoegaze in a New Decade: Interview with Jsun Adams of Daydream Machine on the release of their debut album ‘Twin Idols’

Daydream Machine’s music is the perfect mix between spaced-out guitar-led droning and the guitar-jangling fun of an all-in percussive approach to rock. Authentic, inventive and an organised cacophony of musical, literary and cultural influence, Daydream Machine is reminiscent of a dozen different genres. Referencing none too strongly and not taking themselves too seriously, it sounds […]

A couple of days ago, independent artist and all-’round amazing musician, Juleah, posted a photo on Twitter with a cryptic tease that she was working on a new cover – a song by Spacemen 3. Let your imaginations run wild for a moment. And now know that her choice is brilliant, if perhaps unexpected. Today […]
